William Frawley & Vivian Vance hated each other.

Cybill Shepherd & Bruce Willis (and many other people who worked with her)

Peter Bogdanovich didn't hate Cybill.

True. I didn't say "all" but "many." Like Christine Baranski.

Baranski was hilarious on that show with Cybill, in spite of it all.

The list is useless without Joan Crawford and Bette Davis in "Whatever Happened to Baby Jane." They loathed each other so much that even though the movie made a ton of money and was the first box office hit either had had in years, they couldn't put aside their animosity long enough for a follow-up movie ("Hush Hush Sweet Charlotte").

As for Vivian Vance, she and Lucy didn't get along very well either. In fact, Lucy was older than Viv and had it written into Vance's contract that Viv would always be ten pounds overweight. When they were making Here's Lucy, Viv had that taken out of the contact. She didn't look nearly as frumpy as she had during the I Love Lucy years.

I didn't know about Lucy and Vivian Vance. That's a great story.

Deb said...

Sorry--I meant that Viv was no longer contractually-obligated to be overweight for Here's Lucy. By the time The Lucy Show came along, Viv was no longer interested in working on a weekly show.

Obviously I never saw the show.
